, but it is what it is. at the heart of it is ending too big to fail, giving the government new tools to resolve large financial institutions when they feel in a way it will not hurt taxpayers and not subject them to risk. well, it forced losses on the shareholders and creditors of the large financial institutions, which is where they belong. it also requires the federal reserve board to have much tougher prudential standards, so higher capital, more stable liquidity, less reliance on short-term debt. those are the types of things that were problems during the crisis and the fed has been mandated to have better regulation to prevent banks from getting in trouble to begin with. the volcker rule, too, a key part, it was designed to prohibit proprietary trading by those institutions in the government safety net. if you're a bank holding company that has an insured bank that has fdic-backed deposits or access to the federal reserves discount window, you have a lot of government support provided to traditional banks. so volcker is really about customer service. your banking model should be serving cu

on social and foreign policies in the united states and it became an official concern of the u.s. government beginning during the second world war and especially in the cold war when we began to have a scientific approach to measuring for an opinion to analyzing the source of resistance to the united states and coming up with policies to try to combat it the problem is they don't think like us and use our reasoning. but when we are talking about latin americans they are prisoners of their emotions and why they are having a protest right now not for example because we fought a war with mexico and wound up taking half of the mexican territory or there might be a cause but a national dispute over which we could argue about the merits. anti-americanism is a way of looking at the world as a kind of mirror and we have a monologue where we look out at the world we want the mayor to tell them that we are the fairest of them all. that makes for excellent fairy tales. they are not effective in advancing the national interest. >> host: we have been talking with max paul friedman rethinking anti-america
